Apple Support Conversation

I decided to call the Apple store in Marina since I was told they could probably fix the problem. It was an interesting conversation for sure.

Me “Hello is this the Apple Store in Marina”
Her : “Yes”
Me “Can I speak technical support?”
Her “What?”
Me “Can I talk to the fixing people”
Her “Call 224737”
Me “Just a question how long would it take to fix an iPod Touch”
Her “Warranty or no”
Me “Yes Warranty”
Her “3 – 5 Months”
Me “What?!?!?!?!?!?! Ok, never mind”

Then I call technical and they told me it takes 3 months for the Apple Warranty claim which is nuts, so I told them I would pay for the fix, but they don’t fix Apple iPod Touches in Kuwait, they fix them in Dubai. I said fine as long as I receive my iPod Touch in a timely manner, but 3 to 5 months is just ridiculous.

Apple iPod Touch – DOA

So for the first time I have decided to order an iPod Touch, and in my case I really have no luck. It arrived DOA, I ordered it online and its a bit of a special case, I’m not going to send it back, I would prefer to be able to fix it in Kuwait if possible. It wouldn’t even start up or charge or anything, right away from the box, right now its just an expensive paper weight. I’m going to take it to the Marina store based on a friend’s recommendation but that doesn’t mean that they would be able to fix it. I’m going to cross my fingers and hopefully they can fix it.

Intelliscreen

For all those iPhone users out there I think this is a very useful software to make use of the “Slide to Unlock” Screen. With Intelliscreen you would be able to customize the objects that appear on that screen.

Features Such as:

  • Email (Gmail or otherwise can appear on screen or snippets of messages)
  • Calendar Updates
  • RSS Feeds
  • SMS Messages
  • Local Weather
